The Early Edition with Stephen Quinn - Nov. 2, 2021: Decriminalization is now in the hand of the federal government

It’s time we treat drug use/addiction as a health issue, rather than a criminal one. The BC NDP government's call for decriminalization is an important step in that direction. This morning I joined CBC’s Early Edition to discuss the way forward for Canada.

Canadian Health Minister Resists Florida’s Plan to Import Cheaper Pharmaceuticals Amidst Concerns Over Drug Supply

NDP MP Don Davies has suggested that the Canadian government should establish a public manufacturer of critical medications and vaccines to ensure the stability of the nation’s drug supply. This move could safeguard against potential shortages and disruptions caused by external factors, such as foreign importation plans.

Federal health minister says he won't allow Florida to 'pillage' the drug supply

NDP MP Don Davies, the party's health critic, said drug shortages have "long been a serious problem in Canada." Citing past shortages of things like EpiPens and children's pain medication, he said Ottawa should establish a "public manufacturer" of critical medications and vaccines.

Davies also said Canada "should not be allowing the export of medicines to the U.S. unless we have a stable supply for domestic use."
